This is one of my favorites from the Heflin ceramic collection. It has been broken and glued back together and is missing parts. Dr. Allen Heflin found this piece in Xico, Mexico in 1960 according to his journal. He must have hung it on his wall since he glued a wire to the back. This is a clear representation of a man either emerging or being swallowed by Quetzalcoatl. It is 6" long by 5" wide. The imagery scrams pre-Columbian. It is attributed to the Aztec culture C1300AD.

I had the great pleasure of helping to unpack the Dr. Allen Heflin collection and was able to cherry-pick what I wanted. I thought these were the most unusual of the small ceramic pieces. Heflin's writing is worn on the one in the upper left corner and the only thing I can read is that he found it in 1956. The upper center is Cautitlan, Mexico that he found on 9-14-61. Upper right is from Xico, Mexico that he found on 9-4-61...
